Children are changemakers and able to move the world. Together with children, KidsRights puts their words into action. To directly realize child participation and children’s rights, KidsRights supports grassroots projects and actions of young changemakers. Children act with us to fight for their rights.

 

KidsRights supports the International Children’s Peace Prize winners in their fight for children’s rights

 

KidsRights invests in projects connected to the themes of the International Children’s Peace Prize Winners. Following the example of winner Malala, we take action to provide education for girls and echoing winner Keita, we fight against violence against children. The projects of KidsRights focus on achieving, promoting and observing children's rights. Through our projects the local environment and rights of children are directly improved. Children participate and co-decide in all projects. KidsRights recognizes the strength of all children, child participation is key in everything we do. 

KidsRights works with local partners to improve the environment for children’s rights on the themes Violence against Children, Child Participation, Education, Street Children, Child Labor and HIV/AIDS. KidsRights aims to strengthen the impact of our projects by stimulating exchange and collaboration between partners.

Environmental sustainability

Climate change has a worldwide impact. The damage to the environment affects children in special, they are more vulnerable to the consequences. That is why KidsRights invests in a number of projects worldwide that contribute to protecting the environment.
Education for Girls

Education for Girls

Receiving education is one of the children’s rights, for both boys and girls. In too many countries, girls do not receive part of their education, and some never even go to school at all.
Violence against children

Violence against children

Together with four local partners in Liberia KidsRights works to raise awareness on violence against children, to prevent sexual violence and to increase the access to justice for children.
HIV/AIDS

HIV/AIDS

Over 2 million children under the age of 14 are living with HIV and every year about 160.000 children are newly infected with HIV.
Street Children

Street Children

On the streets it is dangerous; there is little hygiene, violence, abuse and often the children do not have access to education or healthcare. Still worldwide there are millions of children forced to live on the streets.
Child Refugees

Child Refugees

For many people, it is no longer safe to live in their own country because of the constant danger that war entails. This forces them to flee to another country. This does not only affect the adults, but also a lot of children.
